    Used in training for the first manned Apollo mission.

    Apollo 7 Training-Used "Telecommunications SC101" Instrumentation Card Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Backup Command Module Pilot John Young, Signed and Certified. Two cards made to function together to give detailed switch position readings as various "Positions" (e.g. "Launch/Entry", "Dump DM Data") are chosen. The top or outside piece consists of two 5.5" x 4.75" printed cards stapled together with a graphic representation of the communications panel on the spacecraft, with multiple holes and one slot die cut on the front to show the information contained on the inside or slide card, 4.375" x 8", as it is moved up and down. Several "Operational Notes" are printed at bottom (one of which has been crossed out by Young"). The verso has a printed graphic of a separate communications panel. The outside card is titled "APOLLO TELECOMMUNICATIONS SC101 Side 1 July 68 Revision 2" around an "Apollo Logistics Training" logo at top with a part number of "V36-789001" at bottom. The inside card is similarly notated. There are numerous notes and drawings on the front made by Young contemporary with his training as backup CMP for this flight in 1968. Young has signed the outside card: "From My Personal Collection 1/2 John Young" and the inside card: "John Young 2/2". This is the first of these we have handled, apparently a quite uncommon artifact from the first manned Apollo mission. Extremely fine condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
